Pin 249, T-shirt Headband


I told you to save the scraps from the t-shirt infinity scarf. I hope you did because here’s something else to make using them. I used the bottom hem of the t-shirt that was cut off but you could probably cut thinner strips from other areas of the T. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures of the actual process so you can easily check out the original pin and the website it originated for those. I would suggest measuring your head or whoever’s head this will be on. I made mine a little too big for me but just the right size to go around Riley’s forehead. I think she sports that Fame look very nicely. Here’s how to do it:

Directions courtesy of


  • Scissors
  • T-shirt strips
  • thick elastic hair band
  • hot glue gun


Create long strips about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Start with three strips and secure the three ends with hot glue. Start your braid and create a fairly tight braid. Measure the length by testing the length of the braid on your head. When you have reached your desired length glue the other end and you’re done.

My tip: I cut a short piece of fabric and wrapped it around the hot glued area securing it with hot glue. I thought it looked a little cleaner and now you can’t see any hot glue.
